How old was your baby...

when you transitioned him/her to the crib from the bassinet or if you were co-sleeping?

  • My son was in the bassinet for about a week. I couldn't sleep at all, had too much PPA and woke up every time he so much as sighed. So I moved him to his room right next door, with the door open and a baby monitor next to my head, and lo and behold he started STTN (10-7) at 3 weeks.

  • My oldest slept in the bed with us until he was 18 months, then we put him in a toddler bed. He never had a crib. My youngest slept in a bassinet until about three months, then I moved him into a crib in him and his brothers room. When i only had one baby I couldn't imagine having my baby sleep in his own room. Now I love that they are in their own beds all night, and I get to stretch out all over my bed, lol. I still gotta fight DH for the bed space tho. haha. I usually win. =) I'm a total bed hog.

  • we transferred to the crib when she was 2 months old. I was BFing, but she was already sleeping through the night, so her own room was a good idea.

  • we used the swing until he was about 3 months. But he didn't officially go from swing to crib until about 6 months.

  • I made the terrible mistake with my 4th child of letting her sleep in my bird from birth. It was what I needed to do at the time to cope. Now she is 10 and we are still yet to make that transition. When she was 4 I remember saying to her I reckon you will be 18 coming home from the pub and still crawling into my bed. She responded "No I reckon I will be 30." Even my 14 prego DD crawls into my still. No wonder I am still single !!!!!

  • 3 months old & into the crib exactly! We all slept better. We both snore so the poor little guy finally got the rest he needed!
